Spiral Dial write stories and improvise electroacoustic soundscapes to bring them to life.
The band was created by Liza Bec after Help Musicians UK Fusion Fund funded her to make INNERVATE. Originally a classically-trained clarinettist, Liza’s life was transformed when she was diagnosed in 2008 with a rare form of epilepsy triggered by playing certain patterns of notes. “I had to re-learn how to play”, Liza says. “I spent several years without playing a note.” She finally overcame this obstacle by discovering a new talent for improvising, allowing her to avoid most of her triggers.
The music for INNERVATE is based on Liza’s original short story set in a world where minds are mere commodities to be disposed of at will, inspired by her own real life experiences. Everything is improvised live, so this performance will be completely unique.
Using a customized robotic tenor recorder, Liza creates hypnotic and mesmerizing soundscapes, together with David Ryder Prangley (who has worked with Rachel Stamp, Adam Ant) on bass guitar and Adam Hayes on percussion.
